Revitalising the Goan Villa

Hospitality, The Postcard Hotels | Cuelim, Goa

The development of the hotels for Postcard in Goa subverts the pre-packaged approach towards hospitality. Home to two ancient chapels–one 100-year-old and the other, a 200-year-old one, the property at Cuelim embraces its historic context. The design of the hotel preserves the villa to a large extent, offering an authentic, old Goa experience to guests. The hotel boasts of disproportionately large spaces in reference to traditional Goan homes; from massive bedrooms, one steps into even larger public areas. Most of the inherited furniture from the estate has been reconditioned, repurposed, preserved and restored in some form or the other, crafting a heritage-inspired, authentic experience.
